Halaman 274 - For the Lord will not cast off for ever: But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies. For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.
Halaman 158 - Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth ; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes : but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.
Halaman 243 - Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon his God.
Halaman 157 - For God giveth to a man that is good in his sight, wisdom, and knowledge, and joy: but to the sinner he giveth travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him that is good before God. This also is vanity and vexation of spirit.
Halaman 23 - You would have us encourage our sons to prove all things by their own experience, while our daughters must not even profit by the experience of others. Now I would have both so to benefit by the experience of others, and the precepts of a higher authority, that they should know beforehand to refuse the evil and choose the good, and require no experimental proofs to teach them the evil of transgression.
Halaman 206 - Annabella, give me a candle ! " said Lowborough, whose antagonist had now got him round the waist and was endeavouring to root him from the door-post to which he madly clung with all the energy of desperation. "I shall take no part in your rude sports!" replied the lady, coldly drawing back, " I wonder you can expect it." But I snatched up a candle and brought it to him. He took it and held the flame to Hattersley's hands till, roaring like a wild beast, the latter unclasped them and let him go....
Halaman 172 - That would be hard, indeed!' he replied, tenderly squeezing my hand. August 24th. - Arthur is himself again, as lusty and reckless, as light of heart and head as ever, and as restless and hard to amuse as a spoilt child, and almost as full of mischief too, especially when wet weather keeps him within doors. I wish he had something to do, some useful trade, or profession, or employment anything to occupy his head or his hands for a few hours a day, and give him something besides his own pleasure to...
Halaman 210 - There is no necessity for that," said I, " for we have had some discourse on that subject already, and I assure you her ideas of love and matrimony are as romantic as any one could desire." " But romantic notions will not do : I want her to have true notions." " Very right ; but in my judgment, what the world stigmatises as romantic, is often more nearly allied to the truth than is commonly supposed ; for, if the generous ideas of youth are too often overclouded by the sordid views of after-life,...
Halaman 208 - At last he came slowly, and stumblingly, ascending the stairs, supported by Grimsby and Hattersley, who neither of them walked quite steadily themselves, but were both laughing and joking at him, and making noise enough for all the servants to hear. He himself was no longer laughing now, but sick and stupid.
Halaman 69 - I went, the tramp of horses' hoofs fell on my ear, and broke the stillness of the dewy evening; and, looking towards the lane, I saw a solitary equestrian coming up. Inclining to dusk as it was, I knew him at a glance: it was Mr. Lawrence on his grey pony. I flew across the field — leaped the stone fence — and then walked down the lane to meet him. On seeing me, he suddenly drew in his little steed, and seemed inclined to turn back, but on second thought, apparently judged it better to continue...
